Second Woman Accuses George H.W. Bush Of Groping

Second Woman Accuses George H.W. Bush Of GropingA second woman has come forward with allegations that she was groped by George H.W. Bush, after actress Heather Lind said this week that the former president touched her from behind while telling her a dirty joke in 2014. New York actress Jordana Grolnick has also now accused Bush of a similar incident in 2016, in which he allegedly fondled her during a photo op. Grolnick said: “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’” Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath said in a statement that, because President Bush has been in a wheelchair for five years, his arm falls on the “lower waist.” He continued, “To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke—and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”
